I spotted The Killers performing at the end of The Late Show with David Letterman (the one with Tom Hanks). They were SO pumped it was RADICAL! I was genuinely sucked in and was just staring at the screen with my mouth open, covered in goose bumps. They had a full orchestra there as well. The lead singer, the drummer, the whole band…. they were on fire and just SO charged and oozing passion that I HAD to find it on the euronet and show it to you.
I always enjoyed The Killers, but my GOD this live performance of “A Dustland Fairytale” has changed everything. It’s different now.
Please try play this on good sound – it deserves it. Slow at first. Then it kicks in at the 1:45 mark. And then it kicks in again PROPERLY at the 2:22 mark. But you need to watch the whole thing through from th start.
Hey? Two words – AWE SOME! That song sounds so different to me now – than what it did before. I love the way he bounces whilst he sings. And the drummer’s wry smile in the background. Who, by the way, looks EXACTLY like Ron Eldard’s character “John Reilly” (here) in the movie Sleepers. I know you agree.
The clip is misses what happens after that. Enjoy this – Letterman comes on stage and says to lead singer Brandon Flowers, “Let’s get a van and maybe ride around tonight, alright? Yeah – and maybe tease people. Maybe rough some guys up, what do you say?”
How hilarious is that? The band wasn’t sure – they were smiling nervously, like, “Ummm yeah, that sounds cool.”
Quirky. That’s what he is. Dave the quirkster.
So, anyway – I thought you might want to do what I did and buy the album now.
Day & Age
More than that, I cannot do.
The rest is up to you.
